I am 12 weeks pregnant, need cerclage and concerned about it

I had laser surgery in 88 and cryo in 93. My husband and I did fertility treatments for 6 to 7 years after that with no luck. We became foster parents and now have 3 children through foster care. I started having stomach problems 2 weeks ago and found out that I was 10 weeks pregnant. My doctor said with my past problems he was thinking I would need a cerclage, he did an exam and said my cervix felt short. He scheduled me for an internal ultrasound, which showed at 12 weeks my cervix is 2.5 to 2.6cm and is still closed. He said he would like to my cervix to be around 4.5 to 5 at this point so he reccomened a cerclage. I have never had anything like that done and have never had a spinal block, so I am a little concerned about it. Anyone else had this done recently and did you go full term?
